When Does the Shooting Begin?

USA – -( Each time Republicans do something Democrats do not like, Democrats escalate their rhetoric. The right is not immune from this, but the right is in power right now, so conservatives have less with which to drive fear.

After the Southern Poverty Law Center declared the Christian based Family Research Council a hate group intent on harming gay rights, Floyd Lee Corkins walked into the Council’s offices with Chick-fil-A sandwiches and a gun intent on murdering the employees and stuffing their mouths with the sandwiches. Also a fan of the Southern Poverty Law Center and its anti-Christian and anti-Republican rhetoric, James Hodgkinson took seriously the Democratic and progressive left rhetoric that Republicans would kill people by repealing the Affordable Care Act. He drove to a baseball field and attempted a mass assassination of Republican members of Congress.

Both men had serious mental issues. But both were provoked by extreme rhetoric from the left.

Progressives once claimed Republicans were racist. Now they claim Republicans are racist killers who need to be stopped. According to Democrats, Republicans attempted to kill people through passing tax cuts, repealing Obama era net neutrality regulations, merely considering the repeal of Obamacare and now by the president nominating Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

We are already at a point where progressive protestors are showing up at the homes of Trump administration employees. White House staff, members of Congress, Fox News personalities and other notable conservatives are getting harassed and thrown out of restaurants. A random 16-year-old in San Antonio, Texas, was assaulted in a restaurant last week for wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap.

Democrats have now convinced a good portion of their base that Russia stole the 2016 election and that Russia is trying to steal the 2018 election as well. In fact, some Democratic consultants are already warning that Democratic leaders may be suppressing their vote by saying Russia is going to steal the election.

Democrats are increasingly vocal about the idea that they think Republicans in Congress are doing Russia’s bidding. They view Donald Trump as an authoritarian figure waiting for just the right moment to suspend elections and impose a dictatorship. Hollywood Director Josh Whedon declared merely considering Kavanaugh’s nomination would create the first American dictatorship.

On Independence Day, “The First Purge” came out in theaters. The movie posits that the Nation Association-backedon backed a coup that put a dictatorship in power in the United States. Democrats consider the group a terrorist organization that Republicans show fealty to. They also believe Immigration and Customs Enforcement is a terrorist organization that should be abolished.

In the 24 hours after President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared Kavanaugh would be “a destructive tool on a generation of progress for workers, women, LGBTQ people, communities of color [and] families” and that he would “radically reverse the course of American justice [and] democracy.” Yale law students declared people would die because of Kavanaugh. NBC News journalists spread, as news, a false rumor that Anthony Kennedy negotiated his retirement contingent on Kavanaugh’s appointment.

All of this is just hyperbole designed to motivate a political base and fundraise. But this is the world in which a man attempted the mass assassination of Republican members of Congress inspired by similar rhetoric. And things have gotten far worse since then.

To believe Democrats, voting no longer matters because Russia is stealing the elections; Republicans are doing the bidding of a terrorist group; another terrorist group runs part of the government forcibly separating children from their parents; Republicans are letting corporations kill Americans; Anthony Kennedy is ensuring Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court to protect the NRA, Christian fundamentalists, and a president who should otherwise be indicted; and the system is rigged.

The Democrats’ call to action is “stop this.”

How long before more Hodgkinsons believe the dystopian picture painted by the Democrats? The Russians are in charge, voting no longer matters, the system is rigged, and the Supreme Court is now a tool of a would-be dictator.

It is only a matter of time before “stop this” leads to “shoot them.” [sure glad we have more guns, and know how to use them ~ AmmoLand]

  1. The liberal socialists should be wary of making accusations and threats that they can’t backup. Conservatives have thus far refrained from responding to their foolishness, but, if pushed too far, will present them with a reaction that will make them wish they had never considered taking the position that they have.

    1. I am laughing at your comment. Americans are COWARDS. I have talked to hundreds of Americans across America and they say they are “afraid to be arrested”, “afraid to be jailed”, “afraid to lose their ‘stuff'”.
      That is cowardice. Thankfully our Founding Fathers were not cowards, like Americans today.
      NOT ONE conservative is protesting in D.C. about the commie scum Strzok, Page, Rosenstein or any others. Americans say NOTHING about the 50 million illegal aliens in America. COWARDICE!
      Nothing will happen, even my veteran Brothers & Sisters refuse to do anything.
      COWARDICE has Americans by their little balls.
      The United States will become a mexican-speaking communist country because Americans are cowards.

      1. Talk about a line of BS!!! Conservatives are too busy WORKING to protest, Americans say plenty about illegals, you just won’t hear it from the LSM.

  2. I predicted this while I was an International Studies undergrad years ago. I approached my professor and discussed what I ultimately believed would escalate into a second Civil War. I have watched my predictions come to pass as spcial tensions escalate year after year. BLM, ANTIFA, it’s all happening. The piece I got wrong was the power of the banks to leverage the media to use propaganda and disinformation to convince the people the problem is a left and right political one. The banks are behind this, just like Soros funded socialist groups we are seeing in numerous countries. We are being played by the elite who are swooping in for a power grab.

    1. “BLM”?? You are apparently referring to such matters as the standoff at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, where a terrorist gang of disordered Western stockmen took over a federal refuge on PUBLIC LANDS. For too long, such criminals as these have asserted irrational proprietary claims and wacky legal theories to claim control of land that is in the Federal land estate, i.e. PUBLIC LANDS! The Bundy deadbeats, who have long grazed their cattle on public lands and refused to pay grazing fees, are a prime example of this miscreant tribe!

      1. I believe the organization the poster was referring to is Black Lives Matter, BLM. That is also known in conservative circles as Black Lies Matter as almost all of the well known incidents have been proven to be lies.

      2. The BLM referred to is Black Lives Matter, which seems to be an anti-police, anarchist group based on the idea that people of color should be given whatever they want with no strings. It also seems to preach that they shouldn’t be held accountable for their actions.

      3. The only reason for the Bundy standoff was because Harry Reid needed the cattle off the property. Reid’s so had sold thddland off to a Chinese concern to build a solar farm, and the Chinese did not want to deal with the livestock. So, we have a corrupt liberal communist that is selling off land that belongs to the American people to a foreign country, that forces a rancher off public grazing land. Sounds like the Democratic Party platform of ANYONE BUT AMERICANS FIRST.

  3. The left love to talk about the violent, backward, Red Neck Right, with pickup trucks w/gun racks with shotguns and a couple of big hounds riding in the bead. Yeah, I’ve had pickups w/gun racks with a couple of guns and a couple of big hounds that loved to ride in the bed, what Texas Good Old Boy hasn’t? But they were for hunting deer, rabbit, hogs, etc. Yeah I’m a member of PETA {PEOPLE EATING TASTY ANIMALS}. But I digress. The only real violence I’ve seen is coming from the left. When you get down to it, the NRA was the first Civil Rights organization. When the Democrat supported KKK was attacking African Americans, the NRA helped them arm and train to use their guns. when you look at the NRA membership you see people of all races and cultures. We are truly all inclusive and our main focus is safe, proper use of firearms.

  4. The “rhetoric” HAS taken an ominous turn. Waters (Dem Cal) has been making threats. Since she hasn’t been censured and the MSM hasn’t called her to task, the escalation will continue. With the divisiveness and hate being ratcheted up, it will not be much longer until we see something horrendous coming from the left. We cannot allow ourselves to fall into their trap. The main stream media is already on their side and ANY provocation they use will be minimized while those on the Conservative side will be magnified. Protect yourself but do not go out looking for trouble. The left is counting on a proportionate response and hoping for a disproportionate one. Do not give it to them.

    1. You do realize there are conservative democrats dont you? I hear a lot of so called Republican conservatives use the same language like a Democrat can’t be conservative just because they are Democrat. I’m sorry but that is not how it works in real life .that’s like saying all Republicans are conservative it just ain’t so.

  5. The left is betting all they have on regaining control of Congress this November. If they do not, we can expect their hate rhetoric to increase exponentially. We can expect all out anarchy in the streets. The left has come too close to their decades long goal of replacing our representative republic with a permanent single party government ruled by a select elite ruling class to stop now. If they do not win all out in November their calls for violence will be off the charts!

  6. I am a Vietnam Vetrain that served America as a proud Patriot just like my family had even before WW2. Even at 76yrs. I would still accept a call to defend the America our founding fathers established.
    There were no rapes, drugs or baby killers that I ever served with, just young PATRIOTS that served and some died for our country and the people of South Vietnam America had a treaty with to protect them from aggression from Commies and Socialism. Many South Vietnamese died right alongside us defending their country. Just as I will defending America today. God bless America.

    1. I don’t like parts of our Constitution: for example, the part that allows the Income Tax, the Prohibition amendment, the part that condoned slavery, the part that changed how Senators are elected, the part that will limit Trump to only two terms, and the weird way that the 1930s Communist Supreme Court expanded the 14th Amendment to give the Federal government totalitarian powers that would have driven the founding Fathers shit-less!

  7. It is a sad time in America. Primarily, because of all the rhetoric, being pushed by the Democrats. It is obvious that Russian collusion was done by the Clinton campaign and the DNC, not President Trump or his campaign. The Democrats, as I have said before, are no longer an American political party. They have become an international socialist party with one goal. Democrats will work with George Soros and any other financial backers to overthrow the American way of life. It is obvious, since the democrats want open borders, the destruction of ICE, an abundance of free government handouts, and the complete control of our Government, Democrats have become the party of violence. They support BLM, Antifa and other radical groups with the sole purpose of causing as much tension and hatred as they can among Americans. Democrats call Republicans or Conservatives racists, Nazis, homophobes and an abundance of other derogatory terms, all used to help leftist voters get the Democrats back into power. In reality, the Democrats are the Nazi form of government, in that they want complete control of all aspects of your life. The Democrats started the KKK but blame the Republicans. The Democrats have held back black and other minority communities through decades of lies, and useless promises, simply to keep getting the minority vote. Where was all of the anger and protests when the Obama Administration was separating families at the border? I see, it was ok then because Democrats were doing it. See the willful obstructionism, lies and now, an all out cry to attack, threaten and humiliate anyone in Presidents Trump’s administration. Democrats are obstructionists, liars, anti-Constitutionalists, anti 2nd Amendment, and anti-freedom of speech, unless you are saying what they want to hear or believe in. Our Constitution is the governing document of our Republic, not the Democrats or left wing extremists. America needs to rally behind the Constitution and demand all political parties abide by our founding document. America, wake up. If you let democrats have their way against the 2nd Amendment and all other Constitutionally Guaranteed Freedoms and Liberties, be prepared to have to take back your Country and the American way of life.

  8. “Mental Illness” is not an exaggeration when speaking bout the (far) left.
    That said, my neighbor is a Democrat. He is actually a good guy, although a bit misled.
    I suspect he is left over from days of yore, when Dem was a somewhat respectable party.

    When people start shooting at me and my family, then there will be actions in kind.
    There will be self defense.

    Be vigilant. Be sober. Your adversary … as a roaring lion, walks about seeking whom he may devour.

    We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but … spiritual evil in high places.

    Keep your head on a swivel. Extra mag on the hip.

    Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon.
    But if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.
    – Captain Parker

  9. “When Does the Shooting Begin?”

    When the Left works themselves into enough of a lather………after all, THEY are the ones who ALWAYS precipitate the VIOLENCE.

    When does the Shooting End?

    When the Left realizes how colossally they effed up beginning the shooting when MILLIONS OF US ARE WAITING TO RESPOND.

  10. I don’t know what is worse the Liberal Demo-socialists who want to kill anyone who doesn’t agree with them, Or the Southern Poverty (Liberal Socialist) Law Center who seem more like the 1950’s Joe McCarthy egging the afore mentioned crazies to attack anyone that either one of these groups find unacceptable. Like Middle-Class Americans, Republicans, or any Americans who love & respect the Constitution. What these to outfits ought to take notice of if you prod the bear to much he may just light your ass up like a Christmas tree. PS sorry if I offend the Atheist & Non-Christians out there. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
